Once i saw that they had both Russian Rivers Pliny the Elder and Bell's Hopslam on tap simultaneously there was no way i was going to pass it up.

Located in a stripmall type place its unassuming from the outside. Once i was in i grabbed a seat at the very nice bar and ordered a Pliny. (my first ever) I ordered a second Pliny and then a fresh Hopslam. Does it get any better then this? Two flat screen TVs are on either side of the bar and i was watching sports center. SOme sort of trivia game was going on at the the time and there good music playing in between questions.

Overall TJ's has one of the widest selections of beers on tap i have ever seen. Their bottle selection is also quite large. I will definitely go back again. In fact i've already recommended it to a few people who have gone and loved it as well!

Check out their website and you'll be astonished at the tap list. I know i was.

Upscale place that had both a bar area and a more formal restaurant area. Obviously we were there for the draft list -- I remember something on the order of 20 lines. From the looks of it they have specials on Mondays to kick kegs from that weekend and get new stuff on. When we visited there were 5 options from Hill Farmstead, which was amazing. Apparently they will always have something on tap from HF going forward, and I will also always be there as I move to the area. Oh yeah, food. Very nice, gastropub+ type fare.

Great variety of dishes, all are executed well. Bar has a nice ambiance, as does the dining room. Best tap list west of Philadelphia. A favorite stop for my wife and I.

TJ's has a consistently fine beer list coupled with fine cuisine. What's not to like? Their Anniversary events are top-notch, too.
